Farewell to Egypt Hall

In the wee hours of July 26th, lightening struck Egypt Hall and destroyed it. According to residents, the hall opened in 1989 and was built by community volunteers in conjunction with town officials. The community vows to once again rebuild the hall by Christmas this yr, if not shortly after.

After The Rain

We have had hardly any rain all season and from yesterday into today, I think we made up for it. Today was incredible. The amount of rain that fell was unbelievable. When it ended, this is what the street looked like - the ditches so full they were up to the road on one side

This is a friend of ours down at the corner .. they are under water and it's flowing super fast through the culverts, but still dangerous when you have 3 children, 2 of which are quite young

Here's the culverts in their ditch - before I got my camera, the water was right up over the top of them

This is their yard, unbelievable. She's put a call into the town to see what can be done

front yard .. flooded

the culverts lead to the park, which normally is a small waterway - you can see what is normally a walking bridge, here it looks like a piece of wood or something!

One last shot - this is from the road and shows that both homes are flooded because the water just had nowhere to go
